EDITOR’S note: A new year’s fresh start inspires some hopefulness about the prospects for the Puget Sound region in 2014. Instead of resolutions, the editorial page staff is offering some wishes for next year in the form of headlines we would like to see.

To the right are headlines from readers who answered our call. We congratulate Pete Sullivan from Seattle, who offered what the staff deemed the best reader headline. He will receive a Seattle Times coffee mug to sip from in 2014.

Meanwhile, enjoy our wishful thinking. Perhaps these headlines might provide some inspiration for elected officials and policy leaders for their own New Year’s resolutions.
